Let us rise up and be thankful;

for if we didn’t learn a lot

today, at least we learned a

little, and if we didn’t learn

a little, at least we didn’t get

sick, and if we got sick, at

least we didn’t die; so, let us

all be thankful.

~ Buddha

Be thankful for what you have

and you will end up having

more. But if you concentrate

on what you don’t have,

you’ll never, ever have enough.

~ Oprah Winfrey

I was reading an article about this very wealthy couple the other day

and sort of thought

“oh wow wouldn’t it be cool to be that rich and just be

able to buy whatever you wanted”

and absently minded I said to John

“do you
think we’ll be wealthy?”

he said to me. “We already are.

And we will only
continue to become more so

the more love we share with ourselves and others”.

It stopped me in my tracks.

And yeah he’s right.

Love to you Onie.

Love Helena”


God. That’s just a bloody good email

and such an amazing realisation.
